About me

I always have the urgent need to somehow capture my surroundings. That is one of the reasons why I started photography in the early eighties. Due to climbing on my supposed career ladder I put my camera away in the late eighties.

In 2017 I resumed photography were I was left for many years ago… Again I was going out as much as possible and find my way back to capture images at inspiring locations.

I take photos with my mobile phone as well as with a “big” camera. None of the concerning story telling moments are depending on my gear.

On the topic on which gear to use I just refer to the Ansel Adams quote; “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!”

I experienced that simplicity, patience as well as emotionally connected to a location or an object are the best ingredients to capture images which I liked the best.

All my images listed at my site are reflecting moments which I find worthwhile sharing. Feel free to send me a mail in case you require information or have a question.
